Hey all, this is my first post on the site though I've been visiting and reading for a few weeks now. I figured this was as good a post as any to be my first. Please read and let me know what your reactions are. Thanks

Amazing Issue with Target Stores

If they have a good sale in their ads, take the ad to Wal-Mart, where they
will meet the price...............

Dick Forrey of the Vietnam Veterans Association wrote.

"Recently we asked the local TARGET store to be a proud sponsor of the
Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall during our spring recognition event. We received the following reply from
the local TARGET management:

'Veterans do not meet our area of giving. We only donate to the arts,
social action groups, gay & lesbian causes, and education.' "

So I'm thinking, if the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and veterans in
general do not meet their donation criteria, then something is really wrong at this TARGET store. We were not asking for thousands of dollars, not even hundreds, just a small sponsorship for a memorial remembrance.

As a follow-up, I E-mailed the TARGET U.S. corporate headquarters and their response was the same.

That's their national policy.

Then I looked into the company further. They will not allow the Marines
to collect for 'Toys for Tots' at any of their stores. And during the recent Iraq deployment, they would not allow families of employees who were called up for active duty to continue their insurance coverage while they were on military service.

Then as I dig further, TARGET is a French-owned corporation.

Now, I'm thinking again. If TARGET cannot support American Veterans, then why should my family and I support their stores by spending our hard earned American dollars and to have their profits sent to France.

Without the American Vets, where would France be today?"

Sincerely,
Dick Forrey

Please send this on to everyone you know to let Target know
how AMERICAN'S feel about their non-support of America and
our support of them. Isn't it amazing how people can forget
when we support them.

I used to fall for these too.


"Riding a race bike is an art - a thing that you do because you feel something inside."

"I don't like being famous - it is like a prison. And driving for Ferrari would make it far worse."

"I race to win. If I am on the bike or in a car it will always be the same."

"I'm Valentino Rossi. And I want to be a person, not an icon."

And don't forget about Starbucks not giving to the troops. I also heard Al Gore invented the Internet and W served in Vietnam.

Target does give fairly generously to gay and lesbian causes so if that is at odds with your ideals then I would say you should still boycott them.
